Three premillennialists arguing over the time of the rapture. Pretty excited to sell this back for some money.

Wow, eschatology is always a tough subject as is this book.

One of the main reasons that I bought this book is that three professors from the same seminary Trinity Evangelical Seminary, all propose different viewpoints on when the rapture will take place. ( pre-trib --Paul Feinberg, mid-trib --Gleason Archer and post-trib --Douglass Moo)

Had to read this for a class on eschatology. Not my first choice for a book on this subject, but it was interesting reading the different views on the rapture.

Although Moo's post-trib argument was the most cogent, in my opinion.

Interesting and thought-provoking. This book provides the basics to the three major theories about the Rapture of the church. No matter which view you now hold, you may find yourself changing your long-held beliefs after reading this book.

Helpful primer. The responses help expose the weaknesses of each view. I'm a post-trib.
